Forgetful Dad leaves baby to bake in car

Dad Faces Charges in Baby's Death

A New Jersey man dropped his older kids off at school, forgot the 4-month-old was in her car seat, and went home and slept instead of dropping her off at the babysitter.

Can't people just get in the habit of looking in the back seat before they get out of the car if they have kids? I know them man meant no harm and he's suffering, but with all these stories in the news again and again, can't people start thinking to check the car before they get out of it?

I also understand that some auto manufacturers are working on a carbon dioxide detector that would sound an alarm if a parked car had a baby or pet in it. That would be such a lifesaver!
